A number of people (including me) have posted here saying that in firefox 0.9 the old command
firefox -remote "openURL(URL, new-tab)"
will not work. The solution is actually quite simple (I have no idea why they changed it!!!)
the correct syntax is
firefox -a firefox -remote "openURL(URL , new-tab)"
i.e you need to add '-a firefox' after 'firefox'
Hope this helps, it works for me on SuSE 8.2

Works for me under Suse 9.1
Suse 10.0 Retail - 32 bit, kde 3.4.3
Worked for me also. Redhat 9.
WHY DO THEY CHANGE THINGS LIKE THIS?
What have we gained from "-a firefox"?
